How to Enjoy a Stress Free Holiday

No matter how much we may adore the holiday season, it is difficult to get away from the fact that the holidays can be an extremely stressful time. With a bit of pre-planning, you can reduce the stress level of many of the activities that come along with this joyful season.
1. GET YOUR SHOPPING DONE EARLY: The longer you procrastinate, the more crowded the stores will become and the longer the lines will get. One way to avoid this is to do as much of your shopping as possible via the internet or from print catalogs. is the perfect site for gifts for the whole family, even the dog!

2. DON’T TAKE ON MORE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE: This can be very easy to do, especially during the “season of giving”. Just remember, it is okay to say no! If it is possible within your budget, allow a cleaning person or crew to come in this one time a year and clean the house, while you are tending to matters that will need some of your personal attention. It is important to remember that a holiday celebration can still be beautiful and memorable, if you don’t end up doing all of the difficult holiday chores by yourself. Also, ordering a cake for Christmas dinner from a bakery will save you a few hours in which you can do something else.

3. KEEP THE KIDS ENTERTAINED AND HAPPY: Keeping the little ones busy will be very helpful, while you are preparing for guests to arrive and throughout the holidays in general. Our T-shirt crafts are the perfect activity to keep the kids happy! Choose from any of our fun and easy crafts posted on our blog.

4. KEEP YOUR COMPANY FULL AND SATISFIED: Hungry=Cranky! Make sure to have plenty of snacks out and around your home while entertaining.

5. REMEMBER TO ENJOY YOURSELF: There is so much more to it than work, baking, and entertaining. Play a CD of carols and sing along. Rent a couple of classic Christmas movies. Read some Christmas stories to your children. Take a walk or drive with your spouse or a friend to see the lights and decorations around town.
